James Ross in for Phil today for another summer Morning Brew. Organics are in focus this morning as Kinzie is here with another dose of healthy living, and we'll be joined by the Director of the Hong Kong Organic Resource Center, Jonathan Wong - He'll hopefully be able to help us determine what is and what's not really organic in our stores! Pilates Athlete Jason Clark is out of town today, so instead we'll be joined by Emma Brown who'll be telling us about the health and fitness benefits of hula-hooping. Finally if you're like me, and you're kind of interested in art but know nothing about it, then this could be for you. Candy Hou will join us - she's the CEO of Accidental Art which organises walking tours of the art galleries in Soho. We'll be getting an insight into which galleries around town show which types of art. All in all a busy show, with great music to add to the mix! (9:00am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org )
